In Litigation, There Is No Substitute For Experience
Litigation tends to fall into two general categories. The first, and by far the most common, is a matter in which the goal is a rapid, favorable settlement. The second is a case that must be taken to trial and won. The Litigation Group at DeCotiis, FitzPatrick, Cole & Giblin, LLP, has expertise in handling both. In fact, our attorney’s ability to excel at the second makes the first more likely.
Over 25 litigation lawyers at our firm collectively have decades of trial experience at every level of both federal and state courts. They have hundreds of published opinions to their credit, reflecting the breadth of their experience in trial and appellate courts alike, up to and including the Supreme Court of the United States.
Wide-Ranging Industry Knowledge, Expertise And Experience
DeCotiis’ attorneys successfully prosecute and defend a broad range of litigation, including:
- Commercial Litigation
- Labor, employment and civil rights law
- White collar criminal defense
- Environmental law
- Public procurement and contracting law
- Land use
- Health care law and professional liability defense
- Personal injury
By collaborating closely with our lawyers across the firm who focus on these areas, we provide clients with a coordinated, cost-effective combination of trial expertise and in-depth subject knowledge. Our attorneys have particular expertise in private sector litigation as well as an unmatched record, in representing public entities in significant or politically sensitive matters. Many of our members have held high-level government or regulatory posts.
Assertive Advocacy And Sensible Strategy
Our approach to litigation combines aggressive advocacy with flexibility. If a case goes to court, we are aggressive, strategic trial lawyers, respected by both opposing counsel and the judiciary. Every case is unique, and we will pursue and try it that way. Our goal is always to win.
While we are justifiably proud of our record of success in court, some of our most significant successes involved negotiated solutions to problems that appeared to require litigation and the utilization of alternative dispute resolution techniques to cut short matters that were already in litigation. The firm’s efforts to resolve disputes at an early stage reflect its commitment to avoid the expense, delay and uncertainty of litigation wherever possible – a commitment that we make and uphold to all of our clients, be they major corporations or private citizens. Where recourse to the courts is a necessity, however, the Litigation Group has the resources, experience and expertise needed to pursue relief until it is achieved.
